No, you need a wooden wedge and a stiff wire. stuff the wedge between the door and doorframe at the top of the window to get enough of a gap to manuver the wire to unlock the doors. be gentle with the wedge, the less you need to pry the door the better.

or you could call your local locksmith/wrecker :)

The primary hood latch for my 1998 Chevy Astro Van does not work, how can I open my hood?


My '02 astro van hood latch used to stick shut also. I was able to open it by having a friend operate the pull handle under the dash while I picked up on the hood. After I got it open I used some cleaner to degrease the latch mechanism and lubed it all with a good penetrating oil. It's worked like new ever since. I suspect I'll have to relube it every once and a while just to keep it working like new, after all it's a moving mechanical part.

Can I remove a damaged ignition key switch from a 99 astro van?


yes, that is what a large srew driver is for, hehe.
However you will need to pull the stering wheel
and remove the internal blinker assembly and remove a bolt holding it in place, if you need to move the tumbler use a srew driver and force it around. This
should be done by a good mechanic, even we have a fun time...If it is design like I think
